GeneDx RCV000414340 SCV000491001 pathogenic not provided 2018-08-27 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing The R611Q pathogenic variant in the TSC2 gene has been reported multiple times in association with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC) (Au et al., 1998; Sancak et al., 2005; TSC2 LOVD). Functional studies indicate that R611Q disrupts the TSC1-TSC2 complex (Hoogeveen-Westerveld et al., 2011; Nellist et al., 2001; Nellist et al., 2005). The R611Q variant is not observed in large population cohorts (Lek et al., 2016; 1000 Genomes Consortium et al., 2015; Exome Variant Server). The R611Q variant is a semi-conservative amino acid substitution, which may impact secondary protein structure as these residues differ in some properties. This substitution occurs at a position that is conserved across species, and in silico analysis predicts this variant is probably damaging to the protein structure/function. Additionally, other missense variants at the same codon (R611W) and in nearby residues (A607E, A614D, F615S) have been reported in association with TSC (Stenson et al., 2014; TSC2 LOVD), supporting the functional importance of this region of the protein.
Invitae RCV000013205 SCV000544351 pathogenic Tuberous sclerosis 2 2018-07-23 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This sequence change replaces arginine with glutamine at codon 611 of the TSC2 protein (p.Arg611Gln). The arginine residue is highly conserved and there is a small physicochemical difference between arginine and glutamine. This variant is not present in population databases (rs28934872, ExAC no frequency). This variant has been reported in many individuals affected with, and is considered a relatively common cause of, tuberous sclerosis complex (PMID: 9463313, 17304050, 15595939, 10205261). ClinVar contains an entry for this variant (Variation ID: 12397). Experimental studies have shown that this missense change prevents the phosphorylation of tuberin tyrosine residues, prevents TSC complex-dependent inhibition of mTOR activity, inhibits formation of the tuberin-hamartin complex, and abolishes tuberin chaperone function (PMID: 11741832, 21309039, 15483652, 26703369, 18854862). For these reasons, this variant has been classified as Pathogenic.

Athena Diagnostics Inc RCV000414340 SCV000615886 pathogenic not provided 2019-06-14 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing Not found in the total gnomAD dataset, and the data is high quality (0/281106 chr). Statistically enriched in patients compared to ethnically matched controls. Found in at least one symptomatic patient. Predicted to have a damaging effect on the protein. Co-occurs with otherwise positive results less than expected. Damaging to protein function(s) relevant to disease mechanism. One de novo case with parental identity confirmed, one de novo case without parental identity confirmed.

Human Genome Sequencing Center Clinical Lab,Baylor College of Medicine RCV000013205 SCV000840073 pathogenic Tuberous sclerosis 2 2017-12-04 criteria provided, single submitter clinical testing This c.1832G>A (p.Arg611Gln) variant in the TSC2 gene has been reported in multiple unrelated individuals with Tuberous Sclerosis (PMID: 9463313, 10570911, 15595939). Functional studies have shown that the p.Arg611Gln mutant tuberin protein (encoded by the TSC2 gene) has decreased interaction with its binding partner, hamartin, and is unable to inhibit the mTOR pathway properly (PMID: 11741832, 15483652, 15963462, 18302728, 18308511, 21309039). The c.1832G>A variant in TSC2 is not present in the general population. This c.1832G>A (p.Arg611Gln) variant in the TSC2 gene is classified as pathogenic.

This variant is not present in large control databases. This variant is present in ClinVar, with several labs classifying this variant as pathogenic (Variation ID:12397). Evolutionary conservation and computational predictive tools predict that this variant may impact the protein. Additionally, in vitro functional studies further support an impact to the protein (Nellist 2001 PMID:11741832, Nellist 2005 PMID:15483652). Furthermore, another variant at this same codon (p.Arg611Trp) has been reported in the literature in association with disease and has been seen by our lab in an individual with tuberous sclerosis, further supporting that this region has significance. In summary, this variant is classified as pathogenic based on the data above.
